in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of respect for the storm victims, they said they were going to avoid any partisan attacks on president obama on this very serious day, they said they would do that, but they apparently really did not mean it, because at a rally in wisconsin today, they had the republican party chairman talking about how america needs to fire barack obama, and saying that the battle to defeat president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take hallo

this time around or like they did in florida this time around or like they did in one or two other states this time around, those red states would send the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. we have a lot of hispanic people moving into the country, having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming part of the political process more than ever. and you have african-american voters, an african-american president, but there are other factors that have led them to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then when you add insult to injury, the other party says you were all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we're talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going f

there. you saw a need for this after we saw very long lines for voting in ohio. some people in florida who waited seven hours. tell us how this would help. >> that's right, chris. we saw two weeks ago in our federal elections long lines, not just an hour or two but five, six, seven hours in virginia and colorado and wisconsin, in florida. several of the elections for congress weren't called until just the past few days. and when we're 12 years past that debacle of the 2000 election, i think it's critical that we put a competitive grant pool of money out there and challenge states to audit what went wrong and to propose the best changes they can make in registration, in early voting, in vote by mail, in voting access. and given the lessons learned from hurricane sandy to make sure that we are better prepared for conducting or delaying a federal election in the event of a natural disaster. the fast voting act of 2012, if adopted by congress, would put a modest amount of money out there as a challenge grant to encourage states to look seriously at what changes they need to make to ensure

to have a better quality of life. >> then we have senator marco rubio of florida who offered a carefully worded reaction to romney, telling "politico," quote, i don't want to rebut him point by point. i would just say to you, i don't believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don't want to work. okay. and former mississippi governor, haley bar rour barbour, saying party needs to do some soul searching. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. we need to look everywhere is my point. >> yeah. you know what? i will say -- and i don't hand you compliments often -- but you've been saying this during the primary process, it started. and now it seems to me that it's great to hear these gentlemen coming forward and speaking truth to what mitt romney said. but it's just too easy right now. it should have been done in the primary process. >> it's just like when i was talking about people in the conservative entertainment complex talking in ways that we'll never win the suburbs of philadelphia, bucks county,

in memphis, tennessee, in pensacola, florida, i don't have a lot of confidence that progress is being made. if i'm a business owner or if i'm a voter or if i work for a large business anywhere in the country. that's what concerns me about this. >> i'm giving both sides the benefit of the doubt that they're going to make this deadline. i can't imagine they would want to make the faith in washington plunge even deeper than it already is. having said that, sam -- >> we're a step closer. >> -- check your notebook. tim geithner came to the table with something. where was the republicans? did they have something? >> this is richard's point which is that now that they have put this out there, i think the ball is in john boehner's court to say, okay, this is an absurd offer. here's something more practical. and you know, it's sort of a smart move politically, i guess, for the administration because spending cuts, entitlement reforms that you detail are inherently unpopular. and if you have to go and say we want to do x, y and z to medicaid and medicare, you are going to end up paying somewhat of a
, florida representative alan west, finally conceded to patrick murphy in when was one of the most probably high-profile congressional races in the country. are you suggesting, though, that the tea party is not much of a factor anymore? >> well, we rolled back the tea party tide. alan west, for example, ran proudly as a tea party icon. he said that the majority of democrats in congress were communists. that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric just doesn't fit. most districts in america. if you've got a fairly moderate congressional district that's interested in solutions, you reject that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric. and the more republicans clinging to that kind of tea party extremism, the less relevant they will be, the more likely it is they will lose their seats and we can get back to the business of moving america forward and solving problems, not creating more problems. >> new york congressman steve israel, good of you to take time on this day before thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving. >> president obama is back at the white house this morning after his histori
